I was excited to find a newly openned burrito place in the airport area so I went over for dinner before going to skating practice this evening. I'm a fan of Burrito Boyz in Toronto so I had high hopes that Mucho Burrito can provide me my burrito fix in the suburbs.
I had a carnitas burrito made with flour tortilla, cilantro lime rice, brown beans, mild tomato salsa, medium tomatillo salsa, cheese, sour cream, and guacamole. As soon as I placed my order, the guy behind the counter put a tortilla in a sandwich press to warm it up. At that moment, I knew I came to the wrong place. All the ingredients were sitting in containers in a hot table. He assembled my burrito and shaped it into a lumpy square before giving it a good squeeze to make sure nothing falls out. Just like that, no reheating, no grilling (oh how I miss the crunchy grilled exterior of those from Burrito Boyz).
Taste-wise, it was really rather blah. Aside from the lukewarm filling, the meat was really dry, the beans were whole beans (I was hoping for mashed refried beans), and the sauce didn't really meld with the filling. I felt like I wasted precious calories after finishing this "wrap sandwich".
According to the website, this is actually the first of many franchises to come. I'll be sure to avoid it next time I see one around town.
